U.S. Government and Constitution - Course Description

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

In this block the students examine the United States Constitution, a document which expresses the soul of the nation it serves. In addition to reading the Constitution itself, students analyze journals, letters, documents and pamphlets from the period. They are frequently given quizzes based on the previous day’s discussion or the previous night’s reading assignment. They are required to create a block book containing artistic work, essays, a quotes page, and timeline. Finally, they are given a comprehensive final exam that demonstrated their mastery of the subject.
